We have had a great first seven days in third grade! We have done lots of getting-to-know-you activities including making "All About Me" silhouettes.
Last week in reading block we read The Bee Tree by Patricia Polacco. During this book we worked on sequencing through our discussions, written answers and by drawing a map to the bee tree. We also sampled some honeycomb.
This week in reading block we have started The Canada Geese Quilt by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock. Once we finish this book, we will dive into a Natalie Kinsey-Warnock author study during read aloud time, as she will be visiting the 3rd and 4th graders at our school this fall!
In math we have started learning about multiplication! The third graders are very excited to be learning this new math concept and are giving their work a lot of effort!
A reminder will be coming home today about our hike to the Pinnacle on Monday. Please make sure your student is wearing sneakers and comfortable clothing. A good time should be had by all!
